DeMar DeRozan’s daughter receives a big offer from a big company before the Bulls game in Miami after stealing the spotlight in Toronto
DEMAR DeRozan’s daughter stole the show Wednesday night in the Chicago Bulls’ playoff win over the Toronto Raptors.
The 33-year-old’s daughter was in an uproar on social media after helping cheer the Bulls on from a late deficit and win, prompting a bid from a famous airline.
United Airlines offered Diar DeRozan, nine, a free flight to Miami for Friday’s play-in tournament game against the Miami Heat.
Diar was a big part of Chicago’s win. She let out screams and loud noises to distract the Raptors players throughout the night.
She could hear her throwing Toronto down every time they went to the free throw line.
And it worked.
Toronto shot miserably from the free throw line at 18 to 36 – their worst performance in the charity strip all season.
It was also the most missed free throw in an NBA playoff since 1969.
It’s unclear if Dad (DeMar) accepted the offer, but you can’t blame the attempt.
However, DeMar stated after Wednesday’s game that she would not be going to the game and would have to return to school.
He also said he let her go to the Raptors game because he used to play in Toronto.
DeMar played for the Raptors from 2009 to 2018 and was selected to four All-Star Games during his tenure.
Chicago plays Miami on Friday for the final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
The winner of the Heat Bulls meets the No. 1 seeded Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday.
